Atlanta Summer Games bombing
The tragic bombing of Centennial Olympic Park, a popular hub for athletes and spectators, took place during an open-air concert, and claimed the lives of two people. On July 27, 1996, three pipe bombs were discovered in a black sports bag. Richard Jewell, a security guard who was considered a prime suspect for the attack, was later cleared of any wrongdoing.
In the end, the culprit of the 1996 Olympic bombing was found to be Eric Robert Rudolph, a twisted individual who also bombed an abortion clinic, and a lesbian bar, in the Georgia area. Rudolph is currently serving life without the possibility of parole at one of America’s harshest Supermax prisons, ADX Florence.
